that could hurt our economy. all of us need to take responsibility for thinking about the same patriotism, duty that we see on display in our military. >> somewhat awkwardly president obama discovered that that's "not in my backyard" can apply to things like proposal to -- >> nobody who is going to buy a corporate jet is going to not buy it because of a small tax break. >> but you understand these middle class workers say it is because of the threat of this proposal to take away. >> i'm sure that some of these companies who want to keep these tax breaks for their customers, i get that, but that's not the reason that there's going to be an impact in terms of their sales. >> you could tell which states actually have some of these companies that build some of these private planes. president's pressure shows no signs of swaying republicans. both sides are digging in their heels, leading to a game of finger pointing about who loved the sequester more. democrats, they participated yesterday by circulating a 2011 powerpoint that speaker boehner's office had put out at the time. they did that yes

." i'm chuck todd. a lot of news to get to and by the way the u.s. post office will hold a 10:00 a.m. press conference that they are cutting saturday mail and they will take six months and a question we all have why does it take six months? good-bye fiscal cliff and debt ceiling, hello to the efforts of delay or suspend the "s" word, the sequester, that automatic defense and spending cut mechanism that's set to take effect on march 1st. on tuesday president obama went public for the first time in a while with his opening offer on the budget battles ahead, and today he goes behind closed doors with senate democrats in their retreat in annapolis to strategize and preview his state of the union addressch the white house wanted to send two messages with the president's visit to briefing room yesterday. one, that the burden of shutting off the sequester is on congress. >> if congress can't act immediately on a bigger package, they should at least pass a smaller package of spending cuts and tax reforms that would delay the economically damaging effects of the sequester for a few more mon

don't happen in washington by accident. this races the question that many of us continue to wonder about. does the president really want a result or does he want another reason to beat up republicans so he can get political advantage in the next election? >> he argued the white house plan and bipartisan negotiations shared some key elements. >> republican, this was leaked. it's also clear that it's incomplete. there's a silver lining in this which is that there are a lot of co commonalities between the two plans. >> was this intention by the white house to pressure congress at this point it doesn't matter. if the compromise doesn't happen, they will drop a political hammer on them. but if the white house did want to leak this, why would they wanted to leak this to a newspaper that couldn't publish for 48 hours? this seems like one of those things, republican white house staff is tens of people, not hundreds of people. so maybe somebody wanted to leak this but maybe not somebody in the president's inner circle. turning to the inter-republican rift. at the center of it is karl rove,
world war ii veterans in the u.s. senate. what's that mean for our politics and our national perspective? >>> good morning from washington. it's friday, february 15th, it's t"the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. president obama is standing by his embattled nominee for secretary of defense, chuck hagel, as hagel's former senate republican colleagues put up a major roadblock yesterday in their attempts to not just delay the nomination, but try to kill it. >> the yeas are 58, the nays are 40. one senator announced present. >> and with that senate vote, chuck hagel came up short of a 60-vote filibuster roadblock that senate republicans demanded, delaying what could still be hagel's eventual confirmation vote by at least two weeks. four republicans, mississippi's thad cochran, susan collins, mike johannes, and lisa murkowski voted. president obama was emphatic during a google plus question and answer session. >> my expectation and hope is that chuck hagel, who richly deserves to get a vote on the floor of the senate, will be confirmed as our defense secretary. it's just unfortunate that this k
leader mitch mcconnell had this response to the president on monday. >>> the white house will subject us to another campaign blitz. the president's hands are tied by what we propose, sign, and refuse to get rid of. >> let's be clear. when the budget control act passed on august 11, 2011 through the house, it passed by a vote of 269 to 161. 174 were republicans. >> though the president's speech will be dominated by the economy, he will touch on the other issues at beginning of this first month of the second term. guns, immigration and foreign policy. that includes north korea that gets a mention after they say they conducted a 30 nuclear test that president obama calls highly provocative. the state of the union is part substance and part atmospherics. >> mr. speaker! the president of the united states! every year the mood is reflected in the chamber itself. despite the focus of speech and the memory of newtown will loom. lawmakers are inviting guests from all sides of the gun debate from former congresswoman gabrielle giffords who was a surprise guest will attend this year with her husban

've already noted that i -- that i should have used another term. the bigger point is what i was saying, i think -- what i meant to say, should have said, it's recognizable. it's been recognized, is recognized. i should have said recognized instead of legitimate. i said it, and i don't remember the context or when i said it. well, i've said what i said. i've said many, many things over many years. that's what i should have said, and thank you. >> notice the pattern there. anyway, time and time again hagel would get hammered, beaten up by republicans, fumble, and the democratic senators would have to jump in and bail him out. the most painful example? when hagel stumbled on iran saying the obama administration supports containment and calling iran an elected legitimate government. >> i've just been handed a note that i misspoke and said i supported the president's position on containment. if i said that, i meant to say that i obviously -- his position on containment, we don't have a position on containment. >> just to make sure your correction is clear, we do have a position on containment,

's the danger here on trying to use the public bully pulpit one more time on this crisis. moving on, politics behind achieving immigration reform have never been more promising than right now. still the more things change, the more they stay the same. the town halls that senator mccain held yesterday in feeng look like those town hauls five years ago. mccain opened by joking that he was prepared for anything that the crowd decided to throw at him. >> i'm so happy to be back with you. it's not fun trying to do the lord's work in the city of satan. i'd like to respond to any questions or comments or insults that you may have. >> mccain didn't have to waited too long. as he attempted to defend his immigration plan, taking question after angry question. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop them? because the only thing that stops them, i'm afraid to say, and it's too damn bad, but it's a gun. >> the border is 2,000 miles long, sir. i don't know how many troops and army people you think would have been required. i don't know how many you think would be required but i'll give you expert inf
